Follow The Iowa Caucuses Live

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The buck stops here and the votes begin: starting at 7 pm CST, more than 100,000 voters - only a small percentage of the state's electorate - are expected to gather across the state at more than 800 public spots, and cast their votes for their GOP candidate with only three: Paul, Romney and for some unknown reason, Santorum expected to have a fighting changes. Results should begin coming in within a few hours. For those following the caucus for the only important reason: to see how Ron Paul does, or is allowed to do, we have the following live feeds for our readers' disposal.

CNN:

Fox News:

Politico:

Live results can be seen here as they trickle in:

And some more on the Iowa caucus from Reuters as the GOP primary kicks off officially:

Republican candidates crisscrossed Iowa in a last-minute bid for support on Tuesday ahead of the first contest of the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign, and at least three - Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul - appeared to have a shot at victory.

 

Iowa's caucuses are known more for weeding out candidates than picking the future president. Finishing in the top spot Tuesday night could provide a big boost in the state-by-state battle to select a Republican challenger to Democratic President Barack Obama in the Nov. 6 election.

 

Most of the candidates have topped opinion polls at one point in the volatile Republican race that until recently centered on televised debates rather than on-the-ground campaigning.

 

Polls show Romney, the favorite of the party's business wing, in a tight race with Paul, a U.S. congressman from Texas with libertarian views, and Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania who hopes to consolidate Iowa's large bloc of Christian conservatives. Romney is a former Massachusetts governor.

 

Many voters remain undecided. The unusual caucus process adds an element of unpredictability. Voters in Iowa gather in public meetings at hundreds of sites around the state such as schools, libraries and churches, listening to speeches touting the various candidates before casting their ballots.

 

"I'm kind of on the fence. A name that's been kind of sticking out, along with everyone, is Rick Santorum. We're not a hundred percent for sure yet," Des Moines resident Jason Harpineau said just hours before the start of the caucuses.

 

...

 

Sparsely populated Iowa only yields 28 delegates of the 1,143 needed to lock up the Republican presidential nomination, and those delegates aren't actually awarded for months after Tuesday's caucuses.

 

Santorum hopes to emerge as the latest conservative alternative to Romney.

 

Largely consigned to the margins for most of the race, Santorum is now fending off attacks from his rivals who see him as a new threat. On Tuesday, he said Paul was behind a wave of automated phone calls that question his anti-abortion and pro-gun credentials.

 

"Ron Paul is disgusting," Santorum told Fox News reporters.

 

A win by Paul would help him extend his minimal-government stance and broaden the appeal of his campaign outside his zealous base, many of them independents, disaffected Democrats and younger voters.

The more these Main Stream Media talking heads move their stupid lips, the more apparent it becomes that Ron Paul is America's last chance. These hand puppets of the establishment are desperate to discredit Paul (he's unelectable, he's the vote of the disenchanted, he cant beat Obama).

Dear America; Ron Paul is indeed a returning founding father and is your last chance. If you continue to mindlessly support the agents of your destroyers (lobbyists, financial elite), you are locking your own manacles and your blood is on your own hands.

Worried about jobs? Don't vote Romney.

"Romney Held Responsible

Employees who lost jobs at Bain-controlled companies more than a decade ago say they still hold Romney responsible.

“I would not vote for him for anything,” said Phyllis Detro, 68, who lost her job at a Bain-owned office paper products factory in Marion, Indiana, closed in 1995. “I’d like to see the jobs that he’s created. He has taken away jobs.”

RP getting 3rd is just the logical conclusion. The disaster is that we all live in an oligarchy and few are willing to admit it. Most American men are cowards strutting around like they're alpha males. If they actually admitted they were slaves, their ego would require them to do something about it. Not surprisingly, they don't admit it. Speaking in terms of evolution, it's easier to fool the women into believing you're brave (less risk), instead of proving it.

As much as I don't respect ORI (and I don't respect him quite a bit), it does seem that this election cannot save the former USA. We've got over 40 million Mexicans here. Game over. Reboot.

In addition, it seems that the time for sound money was decades ago, before we crested the debt mountain. Is sound money a good answer when it means paying off 15, 17, 20 trillion in debt with gold? I don't know, but perhaps blowing up the debt is the lowest cost option.

That said, I'll vote for Paul because the rest are authentic traitors.

Never seen a worse "victory" speech than that of Mitt Romney's tonight - insincere, hollow, rushed, cold and unlikable.... in other words, perfectly fitting for a cardboard cutout charlatan full of empty rhetoric and overplayed cliches, straight from the workshop of the American Plutocracy.  I fucking hate everything about Santorum, but at least the guy's speech was sincere tonight. It was personable, warm and thoughtful.  You could sense how amazingly grateful (and surprised) he was after months and months of shaking hands and knocking on doors.  Romney, on the other hand, was cold and mechanical, as if this speech is yet another obligation in his long, assured run for the nomination.   

There has never been a bigger need for a third party candidate in American history, EVER.  Too bad the Tea Party imploded chasing red herrings like birth certificates, death panels and Hitler analogies.  There really was something meaningful there, but it got over-run by Sarah Palin/Glenn Beck-style lunacy.

I'm glad I went to a movie tonight.  I'm so fucking furious right now.  How are we expected to believe those 29K Santorum vote? He shits the bed huge in Iowa straw poll, but somehow comes out of fucking nowhere and gets 25%?

In monumentally corrupt times, perhaps I was naive to expect honest vote counting.  That CNN video is just more evidence of the Zionist whore lobby machine that treats our soldiers like cannon fodder, and our currency like ass paper.

 

"Oh I'm sorry. You served in war time going on ten years, and you mention Israel on Israeli owned media??? Cut to commercial!"

At this point I need to put the laptop down before I throw it through the fucking window.

The polling this time around reveals a "top tier" of entrance with Paul being somewhere in the mix of the top 3.. CNN list his name 1st in the 3sum does that mean he is winning in the polls?  WTF is 'TOP TIER" bitchezz ?

Santorum is not a douchebag, but is actually a reason for using a douchebag and associated cleansing apparatus.

Ron Paul is HISTORY. It is fucking OVER.

I am not sure RP can do it. I am doubtful it matters.

Your words piss me off.

If he comes in third, why does he "suck shit?" Why is he a "loser." The field keeps changing. Different every goddamn week. Own that or look like the dishonorable, dishonest, shit that you look like right this second.

And I keep seeing him being second in so many things and not mentioned at all in news reports. Tied too and not mentioned.

I have no horse in this game. I think if he gets in there, he just gets served a platter of shit that will collapse and won't work any way. But for fuck's sake, are you rooting for another one of the groveling plastic whores? Seriously?

Cry me a fucking river. Give me a goddamn break.

MsCreant,

I'm not rooting for any of them. They ALL suck shit.

But I find it hilarious that:

(1) so many of you fools think RP would make a (positive) difference if he won

(2) so many of you fools think RP has a chance to win

 

Ron Paul is a dangerous pacifist who is clueless about the necessity of foreign trade. Make no mistake, if RP was president, the vast majority of the USA foreign trade would end with RP's idiotic withdrawal of all troops abroad.

Tough shit, asshole, Ron Paul is done.

Tell me someone else just saw that on CNN

They interviewed a soldier who voted for Ron Paul had a 9/11 tattoo and the reporter said "some people think Ron Paul would be bad for our national defense and would lower our defenses allowing more terrist activities"

Soldier looks at her and goes "I think nit picking wars all over the world is actually more dangerous and countries like Israel are more than capable of defending themselves in that region"....feed cut...

Wolf - "I am sorry, we lost that feed, lets go to the Romney camp....

such BS....our soldiers know, our people know, I just hope the voting system hasn't veen currupted enough that RP actually has a chance this go round

Once again, the MSM has been cock blocked. Suggestive subliminal voting is not working out so well. The new social networking environment has provided many obstacles for the fifth columnist to spin negativity.

The only negativity is to discredit under character assassination. Progressive minions don't want to lose the last hope in transforming the United States of America.

Christianity is stupid. Communism? is good.
